Rooting for Failure? Cheerleading Won’t Fix Obamacare


by G. Sand Lapper

The only time Democrats can tout the merits of their proposed policies and passed laws is before they take effect and the disastrous results are made manifest.

But even after their policies are enacted into law, elected Democrats and the press branch of the party aka “Mainstream Media” go to work overtime to blame Republicans for the suffering that inevitably ensues when Democrats’ unnatural laws are foisted upon actual human beings. That fact, and the usual circumstance of divided government, has allowed the party of Jefferson and Jackson to survive decades longer than either of the former presidents would have remained members of it.

So last night I accidentally left the television on a non-sports station while preparing my pre-Monday Night Football meal and all I heard from the idiot box as my Thanksgiving leftovers re-warmed were liberal Democrats blaming website software problems, and complaints of Americans desirous of keeping their insurance policies and doctors, on Republicans allegedly “rooting for failure”. Given the lowly state of education in America since it became increasingly federal-government-run, it is understandable that many who call the Jack Ass their party mascot could confuse the verb “root” with “observe”, but of course most of the braying donkeys on CNN etc have no problem with those verbs when not discussing failed policies they supported and/or voted for.

The Patient Protection and Affordability Act, BY ITS OWN TERMS, mandates that insurance companies cover more illnesses and procedures than did most pre-Obamacare policies. It was ALWAYS clear that Obamacare would result in mass cancellations of existing policies, despite President Barack Obama’s serial lying promises. And in fact, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) admitted last week that all Democrats knew the you-can-keep-your-policy promise was a lie. But it was for our own good. Former President Bill Clinton persuaded Democrat Senate holdouts to pass the admittedly flawed (it didn’t go as far as HillaryCare towards single-payer, fully-socialized medicine) ACA when his party held the Senate, by a filibuster-proof super-majority, and the House in 2009-10, with the refrain that they could “fix it later.”
